The Escape Artist Is The Independent's TV Pick Of The Week



Episode one of David Tennant's new BBC One thriller, The Escape Artist is the TV Pick Of The Week in The Independent. 

They say:
The Spooks creator David Wolstencroft has written this three-part thriller that has David Tennant as Will Burton (above with Ashley Jensen), a hot-shot criminal defence barrister who has never lost a case. "Everyone deserves a defence," he tells a rival QC played by Sophie Okonedo, who accuses him of glory-seeking.


However, his next case comes back to bite him when he agrees to defend a young man (a chillingly arrogant Toby Kebbell) accused of the sadistic murder of a young woman – yes, another of those, but unlike, say, BBC2's The Fall, this doesn't dwell lovingly on the crime. A top-notch cast includes Jensen as Burton's wife, Anton Lesser as his head of chambers, and Roy Marsden – who seems these days to be morphing nicely into Alec Guinness.

The Escape Artist starts on Tuesday 29th October at 9pm on BBC One.
